Living History Museum- Fort Nisqually


They were having a special Victorian days for Christmas. My granddaughter and daughter dressed up. The first photo is in the living room of the main house. The ladies were sewing. The second photo my gd is playing a tossing game with wooden rings and sticks. The third game my other gd is playing with a rod and stick. They had a lot of fun.

I got my shopping done and I've started my decorating. I'm not into decorate this year like I usually am, but I'm at least doing my living room and dining room. I don't know if I'll get to any of the other rooms, or outside, but I don't want to force it. My next post will be pictures of the decorations. I have been trying to get here all week to do this post. This week end we are hoping to decorate a gingerbread house (premade) and cookies. That was my motivation for getting the decorating done.

I've been enjoying giving through Curves this year. They are doing toys for our local Fish Line. They had an article in the paper about really being down on donations. They are also sending food and cards to the troops. So that has made it fun. I always want to do those things, but never know how or where. They made it easy for me. So when we do the gingerbread this weekend we are also making rice crispy treats for the troops. I heard they ship better than cookies.

I hope you are all holding up and enjoying the season.
